THE GREAT JOURNEY THROUGH EUROPE
Switzerland, France, Germany and Holland
Date : June 28 to July 8, 2012
Price : from approximately $4,620 (plus air)
This extraordinary 11-day “Grand Tour” of Europe features five nights aboard one of the deluxe vessels of the prestigious AMADEUS FLEET. Travel through the Western heart of the continent through Switzerland, France, Germany and The Netherlands, cruising the most scenic sections of the fabled Rhine river. Specially arranged guided excursions feature three great UNESCO World Heritage sites—visit Cologne’s magnificent Gothic cathedral, tour the lovely Alsatian city of Strasbourg and cruise through the heart of the Rhine River Valley—and Germany’s medieval Rüdesheim and 13th-century Heidelberg Castle.
Spend two nights each in Zermatt and Lucerne, Switzerland, ride aboard three legendary railways—the Gornergrat Bahn, for breathtaking views of the Matterhorn; the Glacier Express from Zermatt to Lucerne; and the Pilatus Railway, the world’s steepest cogwheel railway—and enjoy a scenic cruise on Lake Lucerne.
This incredible combination of river, rail, lake and mountains is the trip of a lifetime at an exceptional value! Capacity is limited and sells out quickly every year.
